Come Back When I first heard that song, the emotions I felt the second the song had started were unbelievably intense. I remember the girls writing a few words of it on Twitter to make the releasing even more exciting. I personally didn’t know what to expect, but one thing I knew for sure was, that it’s going to be a song which fits them 100%. As some of you know, they were about to release another song as their first number, but changed their minds because they just didn’t think it was them, so writing and recording another song and to make sure it’s THE ONE was probably a lot of hard work and long nights, but eating pizza in a hot valley in L.A probably made it a bit easier So, as I got into the lyrics, and before the girls had their billions of interviews, I thought to myself what went through their minds when writing “Come Back”. I started making up theories. Maybe it’s about a family member they lost years ago, but no, they wouldn’t say “baby” to him/her. It took me so much time to finally know the reason behind the song. You never really hear a female musician admit that she’s wrong. It’s always the guy who messes up, never the girl. Admitting you made a mistake can be a challenge if you place a lot of store on not “losing face”. However, in the eyes of other people, a person who can admit to mistakes and move on from them is more likely to garner respect than someone who blusters and pretends they weren’t responsible. Ultimately, continued refusal to face up to being wrong or causing a problem can take a toll on your reputation, relationships, and your work or professional life. As difficult as it may seem if you’re not already used to admitting to mistakes, this skill can liberate you and allow you and others to move on to better relationships and outcomes. Get ready to own your errors! Today, I listen to the song for another reason. “Come back to me, I can’t breathe” reminds me of our mothers. We want them back and sometimes life seems to be taking our breathing away. It is so hard to move on, but not impossible. After what had happened the girls had a really hard time singing this song without even having Bernie in mind when writing it. Even though they had completely different intentions, it all changed in a second. I personally had to think of my mom the second I heard it. I’m just such a cry baby lol. I’m extremely proud of the women they are growing into and they don’t have to hope. Bernie will never give up on them, ever. She’s beaming with pride watching and crossing fingers from above.
Love you, :*

Eric doesn’t talk about his private life, but he considers Bernie his mom too. 😉

Thank you for taking the time out of your day to read my story. I hope I can give you a little insight into my side of this whole journey.
First of all, this is me, “Thelylasfans” :-) - Sana
For any questions, follow my individual accounts: www.Twitter.com/Sanazintaaa I IG: @Sanazintaaa :-*
I remember the exact day I first heard about Presley. It was my friend on Twitter who told me about her account. It was at the beginning of 2010, I believe. Later on, all the other sisters got their own Twitter and so it all started. I started making collages and videos for them, and created the first blog about them plus a Youtube channel. I went crazy lol!
Before I continue, yes, of course I’m a huge fan of Bruno, and no I’m not here to get to him nor would I try to get to him through the girls. I’m 21 and employed. I could spend my time more preciously instead of acting like supporting someone with no love, but my heart has a lot of positivity to give, and that’s why I love doing this.
Anyway, they stablished a group in 2011, as “Jatapreti”,
which by the way Bernadette came up with, but then changed it to “Bernadette’s” after their mother. I personally didn’t like the first name, because it didn’t sound like a girl group, but “Bernadette’s”
was my second favourite after the current one, but I was somehow hoping they would change their minds and think of a name that fits them 100%. Then, in September 2012, they became “The Lylas”.
Some of you didn’t like the name because it made no sense, but they chose the name, because in High School Presley used to write letters to her friends and wrote “Lylas” at the end. It’s a simple reason and fits the girls 100% and if you think about it, it fits perfectly. I love the girls like my sisters and even more than that. Our bond is stronger than any negative thing thatis coming their way. Never will they give up, I promise you!
January 31st, 2013 release date of “Come Back”. Perfect way to get into the music industry. I loved the fans’ reactions to the song and video. Everyone loved them and I couldn’t believe that the 4 had released their first song. My love for them grew more and more each day and I got to know so many great people like Eric their MU artist, Jess, Valerie, Christina etc.
May 31, 2013 - I logged into Twitter. Scrolled down my timeline, read one tweet: “Bruno’s mom didn’t die. Someone’s trying to kid us lol.” I’m not gonna lie, I was in shock without even knowing if it’s true or not. I literally panicked because no one knew anything and at that time the girls were filming their docu-series. I didn’t believe it, so I closed Twitter for some hours. Next morning I woke up with the heaviest heart, receiving the news that Meme passed away.
I’m having a hard time continuing right now. This is one of the hardest topics to talk about, because I lost my mother too 10 years ago.
I grieved with the family as if I lost my mom for the second time and I didn’t know how to continue doing this. I didn’t know how to talk to the girls again, because I knew how I felt when it happened to me.
I couldn’t believe it, not on the day it happened nor the days and weeks after it happened. My mom died at the age of 42, when I was 10 going into 11. I fell into a big depression and couldn’t get out of bed for weeks. I felt like waking up from a coma and having to learn everything again. The difference between our stories is, that the girls have a job in the public eye and I don’t. They have to find a way to live with their loss and they have to learn that getting into this business means getting a package full of lovers and one full of haters. You could never imagine what we are going through unless you’ve lost the most important human in your life too. Loosing anyone in your life is hard but, a mother/father is something completely different. I until today still can’t believe they are both gone. In a few weeks It’ll be Bernie’s 1 year anniversary. I can’t imagine what’s going through their minds every day and especially on that day. I myself am still grieving after 10 years without my mom, so how hard is it for the girls to wake up everyday knowing she’s not coming back? I don’t know. I don’t want to know.
And at the end of the day and like Tiara said: “We’re all just kids that want their mom back.”
And the fact that the girls get a lot of hate is a mystery to me. How do you make fun of someone who lost their mom, whether it’s the girls or someone else. Just because they have a job in the public eye it doesn’t mean you can’t break them by saying mean things on the social network and you can’t change the fact that they are related to Bruno. They all love what they do and you should accept it for the love of Bernie. Like them or not. It’s okay.
They are fighting to stay grounded and alive everyday just to make their mom proud and to keep her legacy alive. No one chooses the life they get, not you, not me and not them, no one.
This is why I’m “Thelylasfans”.
The girl give me strength to keep going in life. It’s as if it was meant to be, as if the whole progress was written a long time ago, as if we were an incomplete puzzle.
I can’t wait for the day we’ll finally meet each other. It’s gonna go down!! :) and I’m working on making it happen soon!
Till next Thursday. <3
